Anthony Honeyball began his involvement with horses back at his family home on the Quantocks. Anthony both worked and rode as an amateur for Richard Barber and progressed as a conditional jockey for Paul Nicholls riding 45 winners under rules, before he began his training career in 2006. Anthony trained horses from his parents’ Quantock farm in Somerset to start with. He then rented a yard from Richard Barber, and in 2012 moved just a few miles up the road to Potwell Farm where he his training operation has continued to expand and progress, whilst still having the advantage of the famous Seaborough gallop.
Ben started working in racing at the age of 16. He race rode for 5 seasons in Point to Points. From the age of 18 training racehorses was always his ambition. His journey started with 2 point to point horses whilst he was an assistant trainer for Anthony Honeyball, a position he held for 2 and ½ years.
Ben has unearthed a couple of stars in The Galloping Bear and Dr Kananga in recent years and hopes that his string provides him with many more successful days. He trains Scoresby for the WRC - pictured right.
Ben is based near Mosterton and also uses the magnificent Seaborough gallops to work his horses
